This position reports to the VP of Education Success and manages a team of four Professional Learning Specialists, three Professional Learning Leads, and a Manager of Adult Online Learning.  This role can be anywhere in the United States, as long as it’s not too far from an airport and you don’t mind turning on your webcam to build a rapport, even from a distance.  We hope this role will require some travel (when the world opens back up), but the travel will be occasional when it happens again.
